Designing Healthy Cities: Prescriptions, Principles, and Practice
This work provides a framework for examining how planning and design professionals may promote human health and reduce the burden of disease and disability. Planners, architects and politicians should be able to consider the full health impact of their decisions, while professionals, decision makers and community activists may evaluate specific design issues and develop a set of working guidelines most appropriate for the unique community being examined.
